Thanks to all who entered the Dog On The Tuckerbox Training Contest, it had some very interesting results. Those who did use their joker rose to the top, unfortunately most players didn't take advantage of their jokers and some of us (*waves my hand*) chose the wrong time to do so.

I would love to hear from anyone who has any ideas for a contest that we can run in 2018, I only ask that you consider making as level a playing field for trainers of all styles and finances. A couple of ideas I am thinking of are

1. 2yo and 3yo Contests with a nominated Sire - scratch bred with a cap on maximum BP or credit cost

2. 2yo and 3yo Contests with a nominated Sire - Breed with a mare you have access to

These could be run on the basis of Racing HQ buying owner restricted races with points allocated on finishing position per race, or my preference winner to be decided on average prize money won per race over 2018.  Minimum of 4 races for 2yo and 6 races for 3yo.
